I realized this year that I had a lot of Autumn decorations to put away. I guess that happens when you find new treasures every year, and I certainly always seem to do that. I started putting Christmas decorations up this weekend - spruce tips in the window boxes, wreaths hung from doors and windows, knick-knacks positioned, the tree cut and placed in the living room. Wait till you see the Christmas tree (it's one that was on our property). Let me just say that it's unique...and has character. I like it, but it isn't your typical cone-shaped tree. It's more of a free spirit you might say. More to come later on the tree. For now I wanted to share an arrangement I put together in our foyer. I used a silver ice bucket as the base. I added a large spruce tip for the center, and white pine and cedar bows around the edge. I used pheasant feathers to embellish, and added a little nest and bird ornament for affect. Flanking the tree are my two riding helmets. Not sure why the ice bucket looks dark - it's a light silver color. Bah...lighting.
More to come very soon. I hope you are all well my friends!
